The Tempest is the best boat I have paddled. A very well outfitted boat similiar to a whitewater boat with its hip pads and thiegh braces and an extremely comfortable seat and backband. You can paddle all day and be comfortable. It is also a very fast boat, faster than other 17 footers. You give up some primary stability but you have enough but anyone should demo it in rough water to be sure. The only fault is the skeg rattles in the plastic version. You can hear it hit the sides of the the skeg housing as there is too much play so the skeg bangs back and forth. You can fix that by placing some velcro into the housing on both sides to tighten it up and you have a quiet boat. Give it a ten after you quiet the skeg.
